Memorial Day weekend
Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of summer and we've have plenty of fresh air on these 30 acres to spread out or make your way to Downtown. Reserve your spot and join us for some fun in the sun. For everyone's safety we are limiting courts, so don't miss out.

Indoor Courts

Rome Tennis Center at Berry College is pleased to offer 6 indoor hard courts for play during inclement weather.  The new 51,063 sq. ft. facility features 6 conditioned courts with seating for just over 400 spectators.  We welcome everyone to use the new indoor facility.  Court availability limitations will apply during major events and due to facility programming.
Introductory Offer
Beginning on Friday May 1, 2020 and running until Sunday, May 17, 2020 we are pleased to offer play on the indoor courts at no charge as a way to kick off the opening of the facility.

All court reservations must be made in advance by calling our front desk to reserve a court.  Walk-in reservations will not be accepted due to limited court availability.  Court time is limited to 1.5 hours per reservation, and reservations are limited to 1 per day to ensure as many guests as possible can experience the new indoor courts. No more than 1 court can be booked per reservation.
After May 17th standard court fees will apply.

RTC Friends Pass
Just a note of clarification on the Annual RTC Friends Pass.  
We have had many of our tennis friends refer to this as a “membership” and it is important that we clarify the RTC Friends Pass is not a membership.   RTC is a public facility open to everyone and we do not offer memberships which other facilities may offer or require.  We offer the Friends Pass as a benefit and convenience to those that are frequent tennis players.  Similar to a state park pass it entitles the user to access the courts at no charge, eliminating the need to pay court fees each time you come to the tennis center.  If you play frequently, this equates to significant savings for the year.
The pass is good for 1 year from date of purchase and we encourage frequent players to consider purchasing a pass as a means to saving on court fees.
We hope this provides clarification on the intent and purpose of the RTC Friends Pass and please find attached more information and the potential savings.  
FYI. Due to the month long closure as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic we will be extending all current Friends Pass Holders expirations by 1 month.  This requires no action on your part.
See you on the courts!
Thank you,
Collin Cadwell

Tips for return of serve

  1. Put yourself in the correct position based on your opponents serve ability. Play forward for weaker servers and further back for stronger servers.
  2. Be willing to adjust your position between 1st and 2nd serves. Don’t let the opponent quick serve you. They must make eye contact with you before they serve. Slow them down if you must.
  3. Split step right before the opponent contacts the serve.
  4. Turn your hips sideways on the return.
  5. Shorten your backswing especially against players with faster serves.
  6. Remember to position properly after the return. Don’t become a spectator by watching to see if the return lands in. Assume it will be a good shot and move right after you finish your follow through. At more advanced levels this is done almost simultaneously. Google the carioca step!
